Be proactive in seeking out female mentorship. While there are certainly women in certain markets/offices (cities) in leadership positions, the personal one-on-one mentorship and relationship building may not happen as organically. It's important to seek this out! Stay involved in the local espirit de femme (group for Pariveda women) and don't be afraid to make your voice heard.

    I've had some challenges with health issues within my family, and have needed flexibility in both hours and in-office presence. Pariveda (the leadership team, OM, my mentor, etc.) have been incredibly understanding, supportive, and accommodating during this challenging time.

    Maybe. Pariveda Solutions currently has powerful, successful, women in leadership roles, but could continue to improve on hiring women at all cohort levels.

The work culture at Goldman is no different than your home. Its very inclusive. The people are amazing, smart and there is always a person who is ready to help. You just need to ask!

The firm values diversity, because clients value diversity. The co-chairs of our newly merged firm are both women.

The firm pays a lot of lip service to gender equality, but in practice women are often overlooked for promotions and raises while white men quickly rise to the top.

Overall, a positive place for women; supportive of pregnant and working parents; flexible hours and part-time options (have heard that they true-up your pay if you have to work more than your reduced schedule); generous maternity leave (18 weeks paid); need to improve transition support before, during, and after maternity leave (e.g., support group, mentoring, ramp-down and ramp-up period); would love to see the firm step up its diversity efforts to retain female and minority associates (e.g., employee resource groups, mentoring, etc.)

    As with any BigLaw firm, flexibility is highly dependent on your practice group and partners. Transactional work lends itself to more flexibility than litigation, generally speaking. In many practice groups, the firm does a great job of allowing flextime and time off as needed. Coverage while you are out, again, is highly dependent on your team. Many partners prioritize face time even though the firm has flexible work options.

    Felt like I could truly be on leave, but a partner did make a few unfortunate comments during my time away that made me feel guilty for being out; positive experiences far outweighed any negative ones

We have a transparent compensation structure so you know exactly how much your coworkers are making, and you know that you're making the same amount as the others at your level (men and women alike).
